After an absence from 'Sunday Stamps', I'm back for this week's free theme with two stamps commemorating the centenary of Jean-François Champollion deciphering and translating the Egyptian hieroglyphics from the Rosetta stone in 1822. (wiki link).
The first stamp I have shown before, was issued by Egypt . . .
. . . and the second stamp, which I recently found on a cover, was issued by France.
The French stamp also has an interesting (though not connected cancellation), SOS Amitié sounds like the French equivalent of the Samaritans here in the UK.
